Mrs. Ya P. is a farmer who owns 1-hectare of land to cultivate rice for supporting her family, and her husband is a construction worker. In the rice field, they have a problem because their field is infertile. Thus, in order to have a productive tobacco crop, Mrs. Ya P. decided to ask for a loan to buy fertilizer and rest of the loan she would like to use to hire farmer laborers to plow her field. She is a mother of a child who is too young to go to school or work. All of the members are shown in the picture, but some of them are blocked.

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
